Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso #Cavs continuing to move the ball well as they have 10 assists on 13 made shots. They are also generating 3s that aren’t falling, as they are 2-of-8 from 3. They shot 13-of-28 from the field. Knicks lead 30-29 at the end of the first. – 6:35 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz Not such a concern playing w/o a conventional point guard when Randle & Barrett are both on the floor. Both those guys initiate so much offense anyway. Fournier, too. The real interesting part will be to see how Thibs handles the reserves, or if he goes w/ a 5-man 2nd unit at all – 6:30 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz Knicks clearly trying to do whatever they can to remove Jarrett Allen, who’s been fantastic this year, from around the rim. Get out running. Make him move in PnRs. Whatever it takes. – 6:26 PM

SOUTH BEND — He turned left from Courtney Lane onto Leahy Drive and was gone, just like that. Brian Kelly sat in the driver’s seat of a blue luxury SUV and put the pedal down — southbound. As the sun rose over Notre Dame’s campus on Tuesday morning, the shade of the vehicle almost looked purple.
Maryland dropped six spots to No. 8 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll Monday after losing two games in a week that saw eight of the top 10 teams change places behind unanimous No. 1 South Carolina.

The Terrapins were shorthanded with only seven available players due to injuries and illness.
